Ennju offers a wide variety of authentic Japanese food: salad bar, sushi, ramen, udon. There is something for everyone. Lunchtime is very popular, but I have always found a table. Comfortable for the single diner too.

Decent udon and ramen, prepackaged in-house sushi with a super-quick turnover. Ennju has a lunch crowd that ensures the sushi doesn't stay in the case for long. As for authenticity, I've never been to Japan, but this place smells exactly like my Aomori-raised aunt's kitchen--amazing.More

Good Japanese food, Order on the counter (dishes like Nabeyaki Udon or Pork Udon etc.) few tables to sit down, quick cooking. Draft beer. Friendly. Relative cheap.More

Stumbled upon this place as I work in the area and was looking for a new place to eat. There is a counter buffet where you pick out your food. I filled a plate full of some of their hot dishes. Priced well & tasty....There was a cold food area & pre-packaged meals as well, but didn't try any of that. I would definitely stop by again to try out more.More

Excellent place near Union Square for quick Japanese. Classic rice dishes, sushi, and various authentic Japanese eats. Very Japanese and very good. Quick, convenient, and delicious.

Never tried the sushi so can not opine, but the salmon teriyaki is very tasty and filling. They also have lots of other take out options that are well made with fresh ingredients and tasty as well. They just added a miso salmon soup that...is to die for! Great value.More

This small and simple restaurant serves very tasty and fresh sushi. Although it cannot meet the high standard of my all time favourite sushi-restaurant back in the Netherlands, this place delivers what they promise: good and fresh sushi with a friendly service. You'll find more...fancy sushi-restaurants in New York (even around the corner of our hotel) but it will be hard to beat the price-quality level. We walked 15 minutes from 32 str to 17 th but it was worth the (beautiful walk on Madison ave) If you love sushi and are going for some shopping on the 5th Ave don't forget to walk in at the 17th str E to try the Camelia dish or the avocado/salmon maki....delicious!More

If you are a fan of Katsu I recommend coming to this place. It is not fancy and is more like an asian deli. Very yummy.

The majority of the staff restaurant and the manager are from Japan. The stile it's typical japanese with excellent food quality, I suggest Ramen and sukiyaki don. They have a special green Tea that it's more intense as flavour, it's look alike fast food, quality...it's good excellent and prices affordableMore

I was looking for a good Japanese lunch spot near Union Sq and read about Ennju. Was a bit surprised when I entered that it was a very casual cafeteria-like restaurant. Had my doubts originally until I saw that they had a sushi chef on...premises and decided to order off the menu on the wall, basically selection of "dons" and ramens. I ordered the katsu-don, which was freshly made, came hot and was delicious. The actual katsu itself was a big soggier than usual, but still good. I also tried some of their buffet selection, which were also very good. Definitely can't judge a book by this cover. Good food in an unpretentious setting.More
